With Baz’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ in the throws of production at Fox Studios in Sydney, it seems timely to discuss young Aussie actress Elizabeth Debicki and her accomplishment in landing the role of Jordan Baker. Her character is the love interest of Tobey Maguire’s character Nick Carraway. Miss Baker is also a glamorous golfer in the film and friend to Carey Mulligan’s character Daisy Buchanan.
I am really looking forward to seeing how Elizabeth, a graduate from the Victoria College of Arts, works with seasoned and Academy Award nominated actors. She could just be the ‘next big thing’!
